Celebrating 20years of Turning Hope into Home! Check out this heart-warming video commemorating the amazing community of women who came together to make Mountain Home possible, including Laura Snyder, who organized the people and resources to make her vision a reality; Bonnie Hamilton who donated her home and ongoing support; and Gypsy Ray, the founding executive director who led and grew the organization for more than a decade. Bonnie Hamilton’s wish was that by donating her home she would change the life trajectory of at least one young mother and child. So moving to think how this effort has since provided shelter and support for over 1500 young moms and kids!

Big thanks to Lauren Snyder (Laura’s daughter-in-law) for making this beautiful video full of so many warm memories!
